Just because.........

Morning friends..........hope you're all well!
Dull, damp & dark here today so methinks a little play time is on the
cards......after the jobs are done of course!!
Today I have a little 'just because' card to share.....I've been playing with inks & 
sprays more and more recently.....I love the freedom it gives me, no
 worrying about perfectly coloured images, smudges look fine & I love that my
 makes aren't perfect.......just like me cos I'm far from perfect lol! So I
 started with a square of card covered with Dylusions spray ink. The script &
 the corners are stamped with Memento in espresso truffle which I also used
 to ink the edges. I'mthinking now I should maybe have heat embossed the
 script but hey ho, maybe next time. The flowers were stamped with my most
favourite stamp of the moment - a 50p bargain!! Again, I used memento ink,
 coloured with Copics then I added frantage to the middle & then fussy cut
 them. I matted onto a piece of pearlescent bronze paper,then mounted onto a 
5x5 black card & finished with a snippet of ribbon. No sentiment as yet......I'll
 add one when it's needed. 
Rightio, that's my lot for today.....hoping to get a journal page finished this
aft so maybe I'll have that to show you tomorrow. Thanks for calling,
whatever you're up to.....have a lovely day!

    Finally moved and almost settled. We are 6 dors away from my married daughter and the grandkids. They stop by so much and we have been busy babysitting so daughter and SIL can have a few date nights!
    DH worried that they might feel this house was too close to them, but they found it for us and it seems they stop by us more than the And we love it! They are just around the corner and down 5 houses...out of eyesight but close to walk back and forth. Heaven!


Thanks for stopping by, I love to hear from you.....
